2022 Volunteer of the Year
Nancy Potts has lived in Chester County since age 12, attending Bishop Shanahan High School and Immaculata College. She earned a Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics, and a Certification in Secondary Education in 1974, and immediately accepted a position in the Marketing Data department at Roy F. Weston Environmental Engineers.
In 1999, Nancy became homeless; as she calls it, a “couch hopper.” Fast forward to 2001, when Nancy was hired by the Coatesville Area School District and returned to Immaculata University to earn a Master of Arts in Education, which she completed in 2005. In 2014, she accepted a position teaching at Bishop Shanahan High School, where she remained until she retired in 2021.
In 1999, when Nancy found herself homeless, she began her affiliation with Home of the Sparrow. She has maintained various roles at Home of the Sparrow to this day. Nancy went from home seeker to home provider, to volunteer at the Jazz on the Main Line Gala, to assorted/anything volunteer! When she retired in June 2021, she immediately contacted Home of the Sparrow looking for additional volunteer assignments. Nancy was up for anything that could help.
Some of Nancy’s past life achievements include:
- 2003-2004 Recipient of the Graduate Scholarship Award of Immaculata University
- 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009 Citadel Heart of Learning Award Nominee
Nancy’s mantra is:
“You never know when you might wake up one day and be homeless, believe me! Life is all about being grateful for every little blessing, and once blessed you must give back. If Home of the Sparrow had not been there in 1999, where would I be today?”
